Magnetic Oil plug upgrade!

These Gold Plugs are awesome!
Amazing the metalic debris they pull out of your engine and differential oils. They have large hex heads so you're not likely to strip them.

Their are cheaper options for sure, but I've read a few stories of cheaper style plugs with hex heads snapping off the first time they were installed or removed. Kinda scary...

When I changed my engine oil, I looked very careful for any flecks of metal, I even put a drop on hard white paper under bright light and magnifying glass. There was 0 detectable metal, and meatal that might be there, will not stick to a magnet, as it is not ferrous metal. At a reasonable price these plugs might be a good thing.

My engine magnetic plug usually has a little fine metal debris at every oil change. Obviously oil filter gets the vast majority of it.

The differentials plugs always have alot more metalic sludge on them. Even with regular oil changes every 1000 miles. In this case the magnets are definitely doing their jobs and trapping contaminates.

On my other bikes I've used Dimple, but with these guys offering three different plugs for our bikes...well that's the kind of commitment I have to support.
Thanks for the tip on a great product.

If I can ask in this thread, should I change the differential oils sooner that the book says?
